Unless I am mistaken, I believe Bally was alluding to you and Mrs 64 voting for each others songs, not necessarily the same voting of other peoples nominations. For me I enjoy this thread as it allows an individual the opportunity to come across some pearls of which we may not necessarily have come across otherwise. Case in point for me this round is believe it or not, "PJ Harvey 'This Is Love'", which I had never heard of, and think is totally top drawer.

I don't really think you need to change anything to be honest 64, it seems to work as it is, at least for me. I suppose if you want to remove any modicum of conspiracy, then perhaps you could alternate between players to provide joker songs, and similarly allow other players to draw the songs out of the hat for pairing songs against each other.

And for sure you have a "winning mentality, win at all costs" attitude to everything, why else would you play safe ;-) :lol:

Oh my goodness, are you suggesting 64's usual mantra of "winning mentality" means win at all costs, and there is a hint of tactical voting going on? :lol:
'Tactical Voting', all sounds a bit Eurovision :shock: :shock: :shock:

The joker songs are not my pick Azkal, the are the winning songs from the 'Best Song Poll' comps we use to run a few years ago. In the main they are a band/artists most popular song voted some of our current players plus several members who no longer post on here. I feel using the old poll it will throw up artists/bands/songs that may not be nominated by our latest crew

With regard to PJ Harvey I own nine of her eleven albums, one of my favourite artists from the 90's/noughties

I'll nominate one of her songs plus four obscure songs in the next poll as oppose to playing safe 8-)

Gaye is one of my favourite artists of all-time. Once again I haven't posted many of his songs in these polls as soul doesn't down well in our polls generally

If you love that rendition by Marvin, have a listen to one of his lesser known albums 'Romantically Yours' where the great man sings some old crooner classics such :

More
Why Did I Choose You?
Maria
The Shadow of Your Smile
Fly Me to the Moon (In Other Words)
I Won't Cry Anymore
Stranger In My Life

and more.......

Boston 'A Man I'll Never Be'
Thought mine would be the only vote, I love Joel but this is the only pure rock ballad worth listening too, Cathedral keyboards, soaring guitar work...not cliched at all. Immense imo

No Diggerty is a magnificent Soul Rap combination with a hook that don't quit and gets under the skin real quick

Spent most of Sunday watching the 78 Rockplast gig on you tube and through the hi fi...worth it if you get a few hours to kill with great music played live

Spirit as a trio headlined, Dickie Betts joined to jam later (Remember him anyone?)

But Mothers Finest stole the show, massively under rated band I bought a couple or three albums back in the seventies and any one who loves that Rock funk fusion will lap this up. Joyce "Baby Jean" Kennedy is an under rated lead singer
